I wanted to talk about the Superbowl, but that sucked. I could have talked about the halftime show (great job Bruno Mars, could've had more from the 'Chili Peppers, though) but it was too short to say anything but "solid live performance at the break between what's supposed to be the biggest game in sports". I didn't catch much of the Olympics this last week, being at sea and all, but my peers and I did decide 1080's in snowboarding are vastly superior to 720's or 900's.
I wish I could talk about my experiences this last week in what eventually led to a long week-plus-weekend at sea and culminated in returning to port late Monday with the view you see above; however, the folks we were working with do dangerous things to get the bad guys, so all I can say is our ship was a literal lilypad for helicopters and boats with tough and dangerous men on them training for dangerous missions. Like I said, our routine is anything but.
